I can't seem to destroy, or even successfully attack,
a port on DarkStarBase. Every time I try to initiate
an attack I get kicked out of the game to the TWGS
game menu...

Can anyone reproduce this?

Is it one particular port, or any port?

Whenever something like this happens, it's usually a locked file. I'll see if Darkstarbase can send me the error log so I can see which one, just to clarify. Can you tell me which game?

It's in game E on DarkStarBase

I hadn't thought of StarDock, I tried to attack
it and promptly got wasted...

Went back, bought a new ship, went to an adj
sector and tried to attack that port and -BlooP- <-Dorky sound effect
out of game, at TWGS game menu.

Yea by default SD is 100%, I toned it down a bit for testing :)

I tested on Mine and on Ice9 nothing out of the ordinary.

I see he is running 2.19.... hrmm I logged in remotely from home. I am getting same result as you. I guess they don't like being attacked :lol:

What's strange about that is you're not supposed to be able to set a standard port to invincible, only special ports (port numbers <= 4). I looked at the code and saw that there could be a division by zero error here, but I didn't see how the port power could have been set to infinite (which uses value 0 for the power). So that's the bug. How did that port get set to infinite power? I'll do some sleuthing and see what I can find out.

Just a thought, this could be a bug with importing data. I need to verify that an import of older data will set the port power to 100%, not infinite. That would definitely explain this. A rebang should set all ports to the specified port power, but if the game was run without a rebang, that might be what happened.

Well, I'll report back when I know more.

It's definitely a bug with importing older data, but I'm pretty sure it's fixed for the current version. Any game imported with a version with this bug would have all ports set to infinite, and would crash when attacked.
